California Governor Jerry Brown Says State Will Launch Its Own Pollution Monitoring Satellite – Gizmodo

I’ve been watching the show on Netflix from the BBC Called Death in Paradise, one I highly recommend, and it said something very wise and that is that paradise is where you find it. I was lucky enough to find Paradise in Los Angeles almost 18 years ago. and living in California is a very special experience. Sure we have great weather, and movie stars and all of that but it’s the people and it’s government that they choose that makes it Paradise for me.

While the Tangerine nightmare in the White House systematically tries to dismantle everything good that President Obama did there is one Bastion in the United States that is stepping up to the plate and making sure that the environment, at least in our part of the world is not destroyed by him. You can tell by the people he chooses to run the EPA that the Tangerine nightmare on how he believes that he is not the steward of our children’s future. By the way not the name I made up, Bill Maher did that, and I won’t be using his name very often on my blog anymore, so the current occupant of the White House is the Tangerine Nightmare on this blog. The first and very corrupt Scott Pruitt sued the EPA as the Attorney General of Oklahoma and had vowed to destroy it. Well while we all cheered at his demise from the administration quietly the Tangerine nightmare put in an oil and coal company lobbyist in his place. Sure he is being more respectful of the people’s money but not of our future. So I am so proud that the state of California is currently being run by Jerry Brown. And Jerry Brown our governor has decided that we are going to move on with climate change study and not let the federal government hold us back. At almost 65 years old I never thought I would be saying that the federal government would be holding back on Environmental Protections and here we are. It’s why I support and holy believe that Gavin Newsom will be our next governor so that he can carry on Governor Jerry Brown’s Legacy.

Sanders supporters drop effort to change state voting plans 3 days before election in California

It seems that this system is only ring when it’s rigged against Senator Sanders in the view of his supporters. They want to change the rules in the middle of the race. Children will be children, but Bernie Sanders is No Child. But he’s really acts like one.

Rachel Maddow explains what it took for Hillary Clinton to be in compliance with State Department email rules

Along with the news that I’m sure you’ve already heard saying that Hillary Clinton did not meet the requirements for email storage after she left office there is something that Rachel Maddow points out.
Here is how it works.
For every email that the Secretary of State since she was to print it and put it in a box. For every email that the Secretary of State received she was supposed to print it and put it in a box. As you can imagine this creates a lot of paper. In this photo Rachel shows the paper produced in 3 days of emails that were received and sent by her. And she is not the Secretary of State.

If you were asked to do this at your job you would say no. And you did not have to travel to  157 countries over the course of 4 years, unless John Kerry is reading this. The state department admits that it’s system is Antiquated and has actually produced 3000 boxes of unfiled emails to and from the various Secretary of States since 1997. Now I understand that these emails are not in any way sorted. There is no index and there’s no way to search through them. The state department says that by the end of this year they will have an off-the-shelf product that will back up the emails. But until that happens this weird system which only Rachel Maddow had the journalistic Integrity to report is what has caused all these issues for Hillary Clinton. They are fabricated issues and I hope more journalists take Rachel’s lead and tells the story The Way It Is.
A lot of people on television and in opinion pieces have said that Hillary Clinton has taken a blase attitude about this email situation. If I were in her shoes I would be so tired of this stupid rule of her having to print out every email she received and sent out I would to be rolling my eyes the way she does.

Washington state GOP convention backs Cruz over Trump | The Seattle Times

The Republican Party are Masters at messaging. They are much better than the Democrats because we let everything show and we are transparent. This is a sign that all the Kumbaya we are hearing from the Republicans is not in fact what is simmering underneath the messaging. Donald Trump is not a popular man with a large percentage of Republicans. His economic message is anything but conservative. Even his social issues don’t match well with the Republican Party. I think as the days creep to November we will see more and more schisms that are created in the Republican Party

State Dept. says it has no emails from ex-Clinton staffer – The Washington Post

This information comes from a court filing in a lawsuit that the RNC brought against the state department. It turns out that her age only sent her one email which said happy birthday Madam secretary. She did not reply directly instead asked that a staffer please respond. Of course Republican heads are blowing up everywhere about this.
Enough about the servers and the emails and let’s get on with getting her in the White House.

For Clinton, the general election is about married women. Starting in swing-state Virginia. Washington Post

This is an interesting demographic to go and try to recruit to Hillary’s campaign. They are engaged, they vote, and they care about the future for their children and Families. Donald Trump does not make you feel good about the future. His inconsistent policies and his complete lack of knowledge of how the world works is very obvious to those who are well educated. For example he thinks that if we want a more stable world we need a strong ambassador to the UN. That would be interesting except the UN has absolutely no power. Unless Donald Trump wants the US to cede its power to the general counsel something that would not be a good idea. Being a good businessman and being a good president have different skill sets. Now first of all I am not saying that Donald Trump is a good businessman. He keeps saying that he’s so successful because he has all of these shiny towers named after him. In fact many of those are just license agreements where he doesn’t own the buildings at all. Secondly the way one interacts and government and with foreign governments is completely different than the way one interacts in business. I think that we are going to turn red States blue all over the map in November. Hillary Clinton is going to be the 45th president of the United States if nothing drastic changes between now and November.

Cuomo Bans Most State Travel To NC Over Transgender Bathroom BillĀ«CBS

I have to disagree with the headline of this story. This is not just about transgender bathroom rights but about LGBTQ rights in North Carolina. I applaud Governor Cuomo for his courageous stance and hope other state leaders will follow his suit.
